Capital Bikeshare Set to Launch 9/20

You may have noticed that coverage of the launch of Capital Bikeshare has been a bit heavy on The Bike-sharing Blog. My company, MetroBike, LLC, is involved with this new service which will be the largest as well as only year-round and regional program in the U.S., so I've been sharing all the exciting lead up to the launch. I also plan to share data from this service with Bike-sharing Blog readers as it's available.

With the launch of Capital Bikeshare just a few days away, the details are now set and you're invited!

Date: Monday, September 20, 2010

Time: 10:30 AM

Location: Tingey Plaza, located behind the U.S. Department of Transportation Headquarters at 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE, D.C. (USA)

Speakers will include D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty, Arlington County Board Chair Jay Fisette, and likely some yet-to-be-confirmed Federal representatives as well. Did someone say Obama? We didn't invite him as he probably has other things to do (like run the country), but with The White House only about 2 miles away, I think we could add the President to the agenda if he were to show.

After the event, we'll be getting into groups of 5 - 7 Capital Bikeshare members and riding to selected stations to begin populating them with bikes and get back to the office. I hope to see you there!
